Deputy Chief Minister of Guernsey visits Brussels

The Deputy Chief Minister of Guernsey, Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq, visited Brussels on 4-5 December. He held a series of meetings with decision-makers, opinion formers and key political contacts on behalf of the Channel Islands’ governments. Commenting after the
visit, Deputy Le Tocq said:

“The visit met the objectives of further raising awareness of the Channel Islands political engagement with the EU, our economic contribution to the EU, and our active  contribution in other areas as good neighbours. Important new contacts were secured at the European Parliament, in areas such as fighting crime and financial services. I was delighted to follow on from Senator Bailhache’s visit earlier this year, where he too pushed a strong Channel Islands message. I think it is clear that from working together in Brussels our profile as the Channel Islands continues to grow. However we have much to do in order to ensure that we become better understood.”
